Moliere’s ‘Doctor in Spite of Himself’ at CSUDH April 21-30

New, funnier interpretation by Albert Bermel drives the season-finale production

Carson, CA— A new, funnier interpretation of Moliere’s play The Doctor in Spite of Himself, by Albert Bermel, will open at California State University, Dominguez Hills on Friday, April 21, and run through April 30. It is the final production of the 2005-2006 theatre season at the University.

The Doctor in Spite of Himself is a satire of the medical profession.  A humble woodcutter is mistaken for a doctor and, try as he might, nobody can be convinced otherwise.  This classic French farce follows the adventures of the notorious trickster, Sganarelle, as he finds himself caught up in the world of medicine and miracles.

Directed by veteran Professor of Theatre Peter Rodney, the all theatre-major student cast includes Christen Jackson, Perry Shields, William Jaramillo, and Elizabeth Hernandez.

Performance dates are April 21, 22, 28, and 29 at 8 p.m., and April 30 at 2 p.m.  Tickets are $10, students and senior citizens $8. Group rates are available for 10 or more guests. 

The performances will be in the 485-seat University Theatre, just east of Toro Center Drive between parking lots 3 and 6. Lots 3 and 6 are accessible from the Tamcliff Street-Toro Center Drive entrance from East Victoria Street, which is off Avalon Boulevard between the 91 and 405 freeways, and accessible from the 190th Street exit from the 110 Freeway. The University is at 1000 East Victoria Street.

To reserve tickets and for further information, call the theatre box office at (310) 243-3589.
